FINALLY another knitting post

I finally took pictures of a hat I knit for my etsy shop (last year...) and listed it tonight.

Still no sales, but I'm working on it. I'm being featured in the Loud and Wacky Street Team blog sometime soon. SO excited.

Other than that, we've successfully hung the garlands and trimmed one of our two trees already. I got my hair cut as you can tell, and I love it. My Christmas Present WIP list is winding up thank goodness. Poppy's never ending Gryffindor scarf is almost complete, and then I have to finish Grandma's lapghan. Still have to get the yarn for my aunt's wrap she asked me for, and then there's one coworker whose headband I still have to knit. Most of the presents are wrapped. I'm going to finish a pair of earrings for my sister once she goes to work, and then find a penguin bag to stash upstairs til I get her penguin cross-stitch done.

And the little Christmas dress is getting shipped tomorrow! I'm so excited. Here are some pictures; since her mother doesn't read this it will still be a surprise.

I hate Being Sick

My cross-stitch Christmas ornaments probably won't get listed on my etsy this week, and I'm not happy about it. I came down with a sore throat yesterday, was nearly delusional with a fever last night, and I'm just mostly tired and achy today. My latest creation is an adorable knit gingerbread man ornament, and I'm trying to get his wife done. I am seriously debating which would sell better, the pattern or the ornaments themselves. I may not be able to part with the finished products...

What are going up, ironically, are some seashell necklaces. $5 each. I think they're a nice reminder of the summer. So at least I'll have something new this week.

Twin Star Gifts is Live!

Hooray! As of November first I am officially live with my new store, Twin Star Gifts. Not much else to blog about. Rob is working on getting work up here and I'm trying to get the promotion I was promised a year ago. Or find work elsewhere. Check out my Etsy Mini on the right hand side of the screen!
